Visited the Papagayo Beach Club on New Years. The service was slow (or as we call it, Island time), but there were also hundreds of people celebrating. Definitely recommend visiting if you are nearby!

We came to Papagayo on New Year's Eve for a visit. We swam in the beautiful ocean and enjoyed some food & drinks. This is a lively area so I will consider staying here on my next visit to Curacao :)

By far the worst meal I ever had for the price. We ordered surf and turf (lobster and tenderloin). The lobster was overcooked and resembled smoked pork. Luckily it was only about 20 grams. The tenderloin was about 50 grams and tasted horrible. The place is full of wannabee millionaires and pretentious people. Never go there, ever!

Just had a quick lunch here in between our busy schedule of swimming and sunbathing. Food was very tasty and the portions were good. Good facilities and service, nice views and right on the beach. If you're visiting this beach it's definitely worth a bit or drink.

There are a number of restaurants next to each other on the beach, and we originally came to Zanzibar's, but it was loud and full of people celebrating sunset (think Mallory Square, Key West). So we walked along the beach and came upon the Papagayo restaurant and bar. Lovely setting on the beach or inside, although it was too dark... More

Despite it being a slow night, we had to wait quite long for our dishes. The bread platter to start was very nice, but the vitello tonnato was way, way too salty. You could hardly taste the veal or tuna because of it. This was communicated to the waitress, with no result. And then the waiting began.... We sat down... More

We ate lunch here several times, the food was nice, the waitresses were in general terrible. They either ignored you completely, or if you did get their attention and ask for the bill - it never came! We left one day without ever seeing it and just left what we estimated it came to on the table.....could just have easily... More

We didn't experience the extended waiting time many of the reviews complain about, but we were there for the breakfast buffet. This far the best breakfast buffet and best breakfast we've had after six days in curaçao. The lone waiter we saw seated us promptly and brought our coffees promptly. None of the wait staff looked confused as others put... More
